We dyed a dozen more eggs today using old silk ties.
These are so fun to do. I like seeing the result when the fabric is pulled away from the egg. Sometimes the dyes transfer in unexpected colors. That brown tiger stripe design looks so much more vibrant on the egg than in the original tie.
I also think the stripe designs look great on the eggs. My favorites of the day are the red and blue stripe, the half paisley half dot, and this red and aqua one.
Wetting the egg before wrapping seemed to help prevent air bubbles. I think I'll try hollow eggs next so that we can save them.
